View Point Health held a very lovely picnic today in Olde Town Conyers for its clients. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, salad, cake and cold bottled water. We played a couple of games and discussed our feelings of being View Point Health clients. We discussed a mandatory meeting coming up in August that we must all attend. The cook out was fabulous and enjoyed by all. We had a great time and very much enjoyed each other’s company and excellent conversations on the lawn. Thank you View Point Health for the awesome cook out today and all that you do.
